The Princess Delighted With Rhondda Visit. Letter from Her Royal Highness- Mr. Rhys Williams, Miskin Manor, who entertained H.R.H. Princess Louise and the Duke of Argyll while on their visit to the Rhondda, has .received the follow- ing letter from Her Royal Highness — (Copy). Kensington Palace, July 30th, 1909. Dear Mr. Williams,—I am desired by the Princess Louise to request that you will be so good as to convey to the authorities of Pontypridd and of the Rhondda Valleys who were responsible for the arrangements for Her Royal Highness' receptioit last week, her best thanks for the many preparations and the care they had so kindly taken that her journeys might be in every way enjoyable. It was a most interesting experience to the Princess and to the Duke of Argyll to see something of the wonder- ful enterprise and organisation which have made the name of the Rhondda famous throughout the industrial world. Her Royal Highness especially desires that the Rhondda people who were pre- sent in such great numbers to welcome her should know how much happiness it gave her to find so many kind faces and so hearty a reception awaiting her on every side. Her Royal Highness has the deepest appreciation of the loyal feeling which prompted the presentation of the very beautiful and valuable souvenirs of her first visit to Pontypridd and the Rhondda, and would wish the donors to know, not only that they will be much treasured by her, but that they will always recall for her the memory of some very happy days among the people of Glaiiiorgaii.-Youi)s very truly, GEOFFREY PROBERT. In the course of his letter to the "Leader," Mr. Rhys Williams says,: t; The people of the Rhondda, as ever, rose to the occasion magnificently. I was proud of my connection with them. My dearest wish is that before I die the Rhondda may return that feeling towards me."

The Princess smiled and shook hands with the little. girl, and after a lengthy con- verisation, present eel her with a handsome reward.

Feil Down Pit Shaft. Awful Death at Treherbent. An enquiry was held by Mr. R. J. Rhys, coroner, at the Treherbert Police Station on Thursday into the death of Rowland Jones (19), 9, Halifax Terrace, Treherbert,- who was killed by falling down the pit shaft whilst about to ascend at the Fernhill Collieries, Blaenrhondda, on the previous Tuesday. Deceasecv was engaged as a collier, and worked in the Gorllwyn Seam. To get to this seam the men have to alight on a kind of folding platform, some distance down the shaft. Jones was about to enter the cage for the ascent from the landing, when his head came in contact with a bar which is placed across the cage for the men's protection. A t this he missed his footing, and as he was about to fall he clutched at a boy named Griffiths, of Blaenrhondda, and almost pulled him down the shaft. As it happened, Jones was hurled down the shaft, and crashed into the sump-a distance of about 120 yards. The manage- ment now propose taking steps to prevent further accidents at this spot. A verdict of Accidental death was returned. Deceased wasi a member at Ebenezer (W.C.) Chapel, Tvnewydd.

And fur- ther, we beg to most strongly recommend that open spaces and the housing of the working: classes shall receive first and foremost attention. Mr. Joseph Jones, M.B.G., Penygraig, gave a report of the work done by the Pontypridd Board of Guardians during the last month.
